Notes (216) : Message

Dr. Nyunt Wai commented that Message should be more important than Messenger (e.g. media, format).

Keynote speakers also emphasize on the importance of Message. What is the key take away from the Keynote Speech? Videos, slides, humor … are entertaining, but without a memorable idea to act upon, a speech is usually not memorable.

Story Telling is powerful, informative, aspiring, educational, entertaining …

Books, movies, music, arts, history, archaeology, … leverage the art of Story Telling.

Thanks to my Thin Sayas, Myin Sayas and Kyar Sayas for helping me learn and develop the art of Story Telling.

Misuse or overuse of technology has led to a saying, “power corrupts, and PowerPoint corrupts absolutely”.

That’s true to some extent. I used to work for a VP who limited no more then one page of PowerPoint in any meetings as presenters/people spent more effort on it than actual discussions.

There is a book called “Naked Presentation”.
